This is the message I received upon trying to enter the August Raffle #1.

"You have already entered this raffle. Good luck!"

I have? I don't think I have. I didn't make 180 posts and I didn't see my name on the list.
I did successfully enter the test raffle.

So....., am I in or not?

I have tried to enter in the raffle thread #1 but got this message:

You have already entered this raffle. Good luck!

I've only posted in the test raffle... (and made around 60 posts in august)

Am I in?
I don't see either of you in the officially entered list. I'd PM Adam immediately.

It would be a shame if your willingness to test the process left you locked out of the giveaway.

I received a message stating "You have already entered this raffle."
Only place I had posted was on the TEST thread.
So I'm not alone...

Sorry, I didn't see this one. Same advice as I gave the other 2.

Message sent to Adam. It would seem a flag was set in the test thread.

Just did a test in thread 2, received the following,

1. Open in 4.5 hours
2. Already entered

Does that mean I'm in ?

Because of a glitch Adam has added all those who entered the first test thread into the 'winners' of the first entry raffle.

So it looks like you're in.

here is the official word

I did't get a chance to disable the test thread in time, so we will have to count the handful of posts there as valid entries. I have merged them with the first raffle thread. Remaining threads will be unaffected and there will be no changes to the number of entries.

so it looks like those who tested the system, which benefited all of us, got a reward

Thank you Adam.
I was a bit put out at being excluded from thread #1

I fall into that lurker category, been around for a couple years. This contest has made me post more, that's a good thing. I bet I don't have 100 posts all together. However, I could never afford a K1 now that i'm retired so I'll try to win one. I have several full frame lenses so wouldn't require new glass to start. I have learned so much from this forum, crazy the amount of knowledge out here.
am i in?

Good citizenship and helping Adam out with testing has its benefits.

And just to show it doen't pay to be too clever I had posted in the test thread but deleted my post when I saw the "already entered" thread. It must have been about the same time as Adam was merging the threads because when I clicked on the link again from the homepage it said it was an invalid thread. No big deal as I was able to get in as the first response on the #2 thread.
